Re: genuine TSAL6100?
That's interesting. I got some TSAL7400 from eBay and I don't think they are genuine, either. Not only is the range disappointing but the beam angle (as gauged very roughly by viewing through a digital camera) doesn't seem remotely wide enough. They look good and they work OK, but my gut feel is that they are not what they claim to be. I think this happens a lot, and is possibly even the norm, on eBay. I'm getting most of my components from Mouser now. They have a cheap-ish shipping option ($8) and they are super-efficient. I love them. With some things (like these LEDs) it certainly is tempting to shop on eBay, but quite honestly you just can never be certain what you've got with most of the Asian sellers. There are some US sellers like WestFloridaComponents and dpi4parts where I feel more confident that they are selling off genuine surplus or NOS.
